    Historical Note

    The collection consists of the materials collected by Donna Schoeffler Aldas Utter and inherited by her from her grandmother, Sarah Haskins George, more commonly known as "Nettie." The papers regard the families who migrated to the Nez Percé Indian Reservation, more commonly known then as the Lapwaui Reservation, to settle Woodland, Idaho in the mid-1890s. They traveled on the Oregon Trail in covered wagons for most of the trip. The majority of emigrants were farmers from Kansas and Nebraska who were forced to leave their farms due to economic hardships and years of poor farming conditions.

    The collection consists of 987 items [not including children’s book] in 6 boxes with the manuscripts and correspondence arranged alphabetically by author and the ephemera arranged alphabetically by type.
    The manuscripts number 54 items. The manuscripts consist of some original poetry, reminiscences regarding the founding and settling of Woodland, Idaho, and various manuscripts related to the city. The memoirs relate the trip to Woodland and the family relations of the people who settled it.

Many detail everyday life of these farmers and their families in the 1890s.
